Finally
Poetry By Anthony James

I look down on myself
my arms, between the wrist and elbow
I see an open landscape
of sorrow and self-pity
and you know what?
my sorrow and pity are deserved

I don't usually feel this way
but today I look down on myself
and I have to cry today

I have to come to see
that I am me,
all I got-

I have to put down my sword
for just a bit
I need to turn my beat around
to see my wrist

and I am not good to myself
and I am not good to me
but there is a truth
coming from some far away place

it shows me that no one cares about me
because the only man who can, does not

me.

and when I begin to love myself
that day... may it come-
to finally see-

I will weep of truth
that I will then,
always be
the only one of the flesh
to ever love me-

myself-

but even then, with all my own love
I will not still know the true meaning of love-

for the One who possesses such a love
I have tried to kill, also-

but He is alive too-
somehow, we both made it-

me and Jesus.

Finally.
